Yes, but maintaining a distributed rare patterns list for a large set of rules would quickly start to be a problem. The list would have to be copied and agreed on by all the nodes in the distributed network, and it would presumably have to be adjusted every time a new rare object was discovered.

Basically, people can talk about a multi-rule CACoin if they must, but until they go ahead and solve all the very detailed problems involved with supporting large numbers of rules, a LifeCoin restricted to plain B3/S23 searches seems much much more likely to actually get implemented.

Yeah. I was thinking of having it automatically processed based on previous lifecoin/catagolue searches at every block but Hey calcyman is literally God so...
